Melbourne International Comedy Festival

If you don’t have the giggles right now, you will when the Melbourne International Comedy Festival comes to town this March.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala Show

Melbourne will be overrun with comedy stars ready and raring to make you giggle, laugh and chortle as one of Melbourne’s biggest and hottest festivals of the year comes to town from 27 March – 21 April.

See comedy legends like Michelle Wolf, Arj Barker, Joel Creasey or Cal Wilson spin a yarn and throw in a bunch of jokes here and there or support the newcomers who are baring their souls on stage in the hope to get a couple of laughs from you.

Whatever your budget, there’ll be a show for you - make sure you check out their program here. Tickets start at around $20 and if you go visit the Box Office at Melbourne Town Hall on Collins St, they’ll often have FREE tickets to shows that night – win!

Where to stay?

Festival venues are dotted all around the city and the inner city suburbs, so luckily this makes both Melbourne Central YHA and Melbourne Metro YHA the perfect place to stay while you spend your evenings in hysterical laughter care of some of the finest comedians in the world.
